About a week ago, this sign appeared on the railing of 35 Sunderland Road. This is the building on the South Circular part of Sunderland Road near the corner of Waldram Park Road.
I immediately had concern about this particularly as there are no drop offs allowed at the building because of traffic lines, and there is scant parking available at that end of Sunderland Road to allow for an additional load a number of times per week.
Part of the building is currently being used by Twinkle Twinkle Gem Nursery. Permission had been granted in 2011 for part of the basement to be reclassified from D2 to D1 for this purpose. I note that there had been a previous attempt to convert the building from D2 to D1 for the purposes of a church. The Forest Hill Society (@Michael) had objected to this in 2010 and it appears the effort was abandoned with a note an appeal would be denied.
I’d like to object to this. But the D1 class includes both nursery and religious institutions. What basis could there be for an objection?
